Jingle Bell Square Progress

Ta-Da!!!  The quilt top is finished.  This is Jingle Bell Square.

If you missed the pattern, it is a Bonnie Hunter pattern found in Quiltmaker magazine.  You can find it here as a digital pattern for purchase.

I knew right away I would make it once I saw it.

At first I wasn’t a big fan of the large varieties of greens.  I tend to be a little picky with greens…I didn’t like the wide range from bright to olive green to deeper hunter greens.  The white sashing was a needed design feature as it helped break the greens up from being side by side.

I had to test it out on my bed to see how it would looks..I think it’s going to be great once it’s truly finished and once it’s Christmas.

I never really expected this to be the quilt top I was going to finish as Christmas is so far away, but I’ll take a finish whenever and where ever I can find one.  I’ll always remember this quilt as the one I sewed to get me through my nasty February 2016 cold.  It’s been great medicine!!

I’m off to go piece the backing together and then I’m hanging in the rack of quilts to be quilted.

    I commented the other day on how much I LIKE this quilt. Then today seeing the finished quilt, I was blown away by it. The border just sets it off soooo much! It’s perfect! I LOVE it!

    I can’t stop looking at it. I keep scrolling back up for another look! Congrats.

    Very nice. I have a TON of Christmas fabrics, that I think might be finding their way into a Jingle Bell Square quilt too.

    I suspect that white sashing fills a need for a ot of people. For me it would be clashing reds that would bug me, but still the white sashing. Having that on your bed come Christmas will add a whole new dimension to “settling down for a long winter’s nap”. Enjoy!

    Just wondering about the white sashing. Is it the same throughout the quilt. It looks like it is, but it is hard to tell from the picture (or maybe it’s my eyes). I love the colors. I have a lot of red and green fabric, so this may go on the list to make. Thanks for sharing.
